Obama actually claimed to support withdrawal from Auroch (no bull!), but when he *doesn't* do it as President, the left will have a cow.

http://www.freerepublic.com/focus/fr/617325/posts — The last progenitor of the modern North American cow was an auroch that died in the forests of Poland in 1627. Aurochs stood nearly two metres tall and had a wide sweep of horns not unlike long-horned Texas cattle, but were unproductive when it came to milk. It is estimated that they produced something like 500 litres a year.

“Given a choice, bison and aurochs would have been more difficult for a hyena to hunt compared to a reindeer, but apparently this was not true for Neanderthals.”

Oh sure, big response for the Euro-centric Auroch, but when it's bison...

Remains of bones recently retrieved from a horn core found in Holwerd (Friesland, Netherlands), show that the aurochs became extinct in around AD 600 and not in the fourth century. The last aurochs died in Poland in 1627...
So the last auroch died a thousand years after they went extinct.

I had always thought that the Bantang of Southeast Asia was about the some thing as an Auroch. Not so says the article although a common ancestor in India is likely. Domesticated Bantang has tough meat though. A nice Angus steak for me, if you will.
